Wishing you a Happy New Year
Ech 12-27-17 Effingham Museum

Historic Effingham Society wishes each of you a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year! Please pray for our soldiers that are fighting for our freedom all over the world. Keep their families in your prayers also as they sacrifice so much while their loved ones are away. We pray for America and an end to terrorism and threats from countries in turmoil. Many are still impacted by the hurricanes last year and the wildfires, so please keep these folks in your prayers, too. Thanks to God for all of his blessings in 2017.
Enjoy your black-eyed peas, collards and hog jowl on New Year’s Day. May it bring you good luck!
